Crocosmia ‘Lady Hamilton’
at Digging Dog

Crocosmia

Montbretia

Coveted by florists, these brightly colored flowers bloom along the length of tall, arching spikes, which emerge from handsome clumps of swordlike foliage. If given well drained soil and divided every two to three years, this fountain-shaped plant will continue to pour spectacular color into your garden for a long, long time.

Demure, lusciously colored apricot blossoms, with small dark red streaks in their throats and bright green calyxes line the branched flowering stems of the same color. Adorning upright, green Iris-like foliage, the long lasting blooms arrive late in summer and beckon another glance alongside Aster ‘Blue Danube’.

Blooms August–September.

Size: 3' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
